Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all my family and friends. I hope that your day is filled with lots of great times filled with laughter and love. Have a great Day!

I also would like to wish my father a heavenly Father’s Day. Daddy thank you, for all you did for me and my brother. I am thankful for all the sacrifices you made and for showing me hard work pays off. Dad you are no longer physically here, but I know you are still with us. You are now one of our guardian angels. I miss you and there are many times that I wish I could pick up the phone and call you for advice. Now, I can only look up and talk to you. I only wish I could hear your voice and feel your hugs. Some day I will again. Some day we will get that special father daughter dance as I too will be restored. Happy Father’s Day in heaven dad.

Lord God, my creator and ultimate father, thank you for each moment you give me breath. Thank you for all the great men in my life. Thank you for all your guidance even when I don’t want it, because being I am stubborn. Happy Father’s Day!

I am a wife, mother, stepmother and grandmother who enjoys spending time with family and friends, crafting, gardening, and I am learning to live with being disabled. In 2017, after my 8th thoracic spinal surgery, I lost all feeling from the waist down as well as losing my proprioception on the right side. This has made it difficult to stand without assistive devices and made it, so I am having to relearn to walk. Plus, I have another uncommon condition called Chiari Malformation Type 1 which also creates balance issues as well as many other health issues. Because of the Chiari and the spinal cord injury, I have been left with severe nerve damage which causes a great deal of pain (5 and greater on pain scale) as well as spasticity, muscle spasms, and allodynia (burning) in various areas of my body. I have endured 8 surgeries on my Thoracic Spine and will probably need more as the drain that was placed will eventually clog and require replacement. Currently, I have a spinal to pleural cavity shunt, which drains the CSF from my arachnoid cysts into my pleural cavity. Professionally, I am a retired Health Care Professional with over 26 years of experience. I have worked in the Public Health realm as well as in Long Term Care and Acute Care. I have a B.A. in Sociology with an emphasis in Social Work. It is my hope that through sharing my personal trials, experiences, and triumphs that I can help others keep moving forward. No matter what life throws at us we can always tell a better story. I know that God is with me and because of this anything is possible. His promise to be by my side every step of the way helps me to keep pushing on even when there are setbacks.
